Strengthen Your EQ and Develop Social Awareness for Improved Performance

Technical know-how, subject expertise and IQ only get you so far in business today. Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is the ability to manage your emotions and connect with others. This ability is critical in our culturally diverse, dispersed, fast-paced, global workplaces.

EQ:The Art & Science of Emotional Intelligence

This course focuses on both the art and science of emotional intelligence. Participants will learn the latest research and scientific advances in the area. Participants will also practice techniques used by actors to engage in active listening, connect to an audience, connect to their own emotions and de-stress before a big event.

EQ: Just because you understand it does not mean you do it – moving leaders from intellectual understanding to being emotionally intelligent.

Most leaders intellectually understand the concept of Emotional Intelligence. They believe the idea and theory that they can become better leaders, parents, spouses and friends by working intentionally to develop their EQ. However, many struggle to take what they intellectually understand about Emotional Intelligence and to translate that knowledge into new behaviors. This, therefore, is the knowing-doing gap.

In this is highly interactive course, Bob Anderson, M.Ed., CEO of 1Hero Sports, LLC will present the proven tools, strategies and techniques he has used to assist thousands of C-Level executives and thousands more key employees (everyone) to move from an intellectual understanding of EQ to adopting and practicing new EQ behaviors that significantly increase their effectiveness and that enhance their life.
